This is a link to a series from Big Bad Book Blog on blogging, and why a writer or publisher — or anyone, for that matter — should blog. Just a quick caveat: The loose definition of “news” in the second video is a little frightening . . . but this may be because A) I’m still supportive of professional news sources, and worry about their demise; and B) I’m reading 1984, and control of information is essential to Big Brother’s rule, and reading 1984 always gets me a little paranoid.
